at the knew political thriller from after fleck. >> jennifer: well for weeks mitt romney stood by those 47% comments. the gop candidate said that he could have been more eloquent but he never once repudiated the contents of those comments. well, yesterday, surely as night turns to day, governor romney pulled yet another flip flop. so it is going to be really interesting to see how romney's new stance is going to go over with his big conservative donors and right-wingers. he says that he was wrong. so i want to turn to phoenix and "the war room"'s one and only tea party republican, j.d. hayworth. j.d. great to have you back inside "the war room." >> thanks, jennifer. good to be with you. >> jennifer: curious what was your reaction when you heard mitt romney had yet another change of heart. >> i wouldn't characterize it as that, i would characterize it as sometimes you have to explain yourself better, it's always dangerous when you explain yourself -- when you are explaining you are losing but it seems to be a clear differentiation where mr. romney made it very clear, ther
>> this week on the journal editorial report the cases in colorado and mitt romney goes on offense. is this the reboot that republicans have been waiting for and can paul ryan carry that momentum in the week's vice-president showdown. plus, could it be a potential g.o.p. pickup in true blue new england? how linda mcmahon is making the connecticut senate race one to watch and the supreme court is back and they're not shying away from more controversy. wait until you see what they've got on the dockets this term. >> if you're running the race you way you described, governor, it's not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's math, it's arithmetic. >> get the rates down, lower deductions and exemptions to create more jobs because there's nothing better for getting us to a balanced budget to have more people working, earning more money and paying taxes and that's by far the most effective and efficient way to get this budget balanced. >> paul: welcome to the j

generally is that it doesn't, even when romney was having a bad couple of weeks, because, you know, there's no effective romney campaign here in california. these republicans get to sort of run their own campaigns and their own district, without a lot of national drag. that said, the two tightest races, lundgren up here and vilbray down in san diego, some other races, an open seat where julia brownley is up against tony strickland, these are important. it is a very, very long shot for the democrats to do it, but if they lose those seats, it ain't going to happen at all. >> belva: is outside money a factor? >> it's huge. >> belva: chime in on that, dan. >> you mentioned the $2.8 million the chamber is paying. listen, the airwaves in sacramento are saturated with lundgren and berra ads and quite a few for ricky gill and mcnearny and i mean, this is hot stuff going on here. there's a lot of outside money. er think there's a place where the presidential thing does affect these congressional races and that's in turnout. i don't think we're going to see the kind of turnout this year we saw four
. it's too early to tell. >> of course, the president and governor romney this week went head-to-head in their first dae bait. ta >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. now five months before the election he's saying his big, bold idea is never mind. >> mr. president obama, you're entitled to your own airplane and own house, but not the facts. >> i think it's safe to say the president got trounced. it was the ugliest night. >> the president is going to have to stand up and deliver. he still has a big lead in a couple of key states, but that lead will evaporate quickly. >> he has to step it up. before the debate, we had a new nbc news wall street marist poll. the president up eight points among likely voters in ohio but just two points in virginia and statistically tied in virginia. >> as the late great tim russert would say, it comes down to one state for the romney campaign -- ohio, ohio, ohio. >> now, afghanistan is always in our thoughts. but last week, there was a special incredibly disturbing milestone. the total number of u.s. military deaths in the war ecl
. >> we'll talk more about the debate, but i think let's just imagine something happened earlier this week, that romney had a terrible debate and we'd be talking can we move on and now there's a question now, eric, can the debate of the news of the debate, the effect of the debate overwhelm the jobs number or the reverse? 'cause there's some reaction saying reverse. >> 67 million people watched that debate and the rasmussen had a poll showed the swing states and battle ground states flipping to romney. >> florida, ohio virginia, but ohio came-- and remember we talked about the 9 point difference obama had over romney in ohio and now it's down to 1 and i think this was the day after poll, the day after the debate give it two or three more days, i think further in romney's direction. >> kimberly the last word. >> thank you, this is what i learned for friday. okay, the debate and the number, that's you will need to know. another great line that was-- >> and how is greg gutfeld going to do in front of a monologue that has nothing to do with this video. something that only my challenged co-host
we had a debate. you may have had the chance to see that. >> reporter: before the jobs number, romney was riding a wave of momentum after this week's debate, he even got a pass from the president who never mentioned romney's comments on the 47% of americans who don't pay income taxes. >> 47% of the people will vote for the president no matter what. >> reporter: romney tried to put an end to the controversy once and for all on fox. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. >> reporter: democrats maintain that tone deafness extends from main street to sesame street. so, obama aides sent a protester in a big bird outfit to mock his call to end funding for pbs. romney will spend part of the weekend in debate prep and the other part in hitting the president on the economy as a senior romney adviser put it, job growth should not be the new normal. >>> now to that shooting that killed a u.s. border patrol agent. the fbi now thinks he may have died by friendly fire. 30-y
is on. the race between president obama and governor mitt romney increasingly tightening this weekend. and since wednesday night's big debate as the latest jobs report. and just this morning, governor romney already getting in some more prep time for next week's debate. and before hitting the campaign trail, in the key battle ground state of florida. and senator-- the national correspondent john roberts joins us live now from the city apopka. and the governor is scheduled to attend a rally. tell us about it. >> we've got a little bit after florida thunderstorm popped up and expected to be gone by the time the governor hits the stage here, and travelling on the i-4 corridor where elections are won and lost in florida and even up, rasmussen has romney up by a couple of points and trying to keep the momentum going from the great debate performance and trying to show voters he's not the scary guy that the obama campaign makes him out to be. and stopping by in a cuban restaurant and shaking hands with the folks and getting takeout and at the a campaign event in st. petersburg looking back
week. former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton endorsed romney and joins me with what kind of message governor romney needs to send in the speech on monday. . >> new reaction to the deadly attacks on n.a.t.o. troops by afghan soldiers, inside jobs, we've had too many in recent months and they're known as green on blue attacks, and fox news military analyst embedded with the special operation forces in afghanistan. colonel north outside of kabul. colonel? >> jamie, there are remarkably young americans on the ground confronting green on blue attacks and following the story since we've been back in country and been with special u.s. operators and here is just some of what we're seeing and hearing here in afghanistan. >> today we traveled to a remote outpost where three marines were killed in a green on blue attack and asked the special opes leader the effects of the incident. >> in the aftermath of some of these events have any come to you and said we're sorry about what happened? >> yes, sir, i mean, we've become like one of the village, one of the the populous and our loss i

of us were waiting this week for mitt romney and barack obama to connect with reality, to connect with the lives we actually live. it didn't happen. the 90-minute debate went by, for example, without a word about immigration. not a thing said about the countless people trapped in our muddled policy. and this in colorado, a swing state, where both romney and obama have been courting the large hispanic vote. that wouldn't have happened if my guest on this week's broadcast had been moderating the debate, but their participation was rejected by the tiny group of insiders who set the rules. that's a shame because george ram mows and maria elena sorena are two of the most popular journalists. they work for the most important spanish language network in the country, univision. i met them for the first time earlier this week when they were in town to receive the emmy award for lifetime achievement from the national academy of television arts and sciences. here's part of the video presentation that introduced them to the emmy audience. >> they're two of the most well-recognized journalists
a stronger than expected performance in this week's debate, mitt romney is riding a new wave of momentum. today right into the critical swing state of florida where he will be campaigning all weekend long. they believe romney ve-- so, ca romney use this new-found momentum to help him in a crucial state like florida? well, let's bring in a man who knows. bernie thompson a popular conservative radio talk show host in the sunshine state famous for saying things like this about the race for the white house. listen. >> i won't be surprised if barack obama just takes a bite out of his ear. he might just take a bite out of his ear. you have to do something, but it's going to get, i think it's going to get ugly because that is the only thing that barack obama can do. >> and joining me now is bernie thompson. good morning. thank you for being here. >> thanks for having me. >> all right, so, i think most can agree, certainly, that wednesday's debate was certainly a big win for mitt romney, hands down. but observers are still criticizing him, actually, about not giving enough details. so, i want to
at the debate this week. that should be interesting. those reports after these messages. ooho romney once again using a working person. apparently the garbage collector for the romney household in san diego not a big fan of the governor's. >> my name is richard hayes. and i pick up mitt romney's trash. invisible people. you know, he doesn't realize, you know, 16 tons by hand. that takes a toll on your body. when i'm 55, 60 years old i know my body is going to be broke down and romney doesn't care about that. >> bill: a nasty situation involving a romney campaign sign also in california. here now fox news anchor geraldo rivera. so richard is mad at romney, why? >> well, richard hayes is a really, the sanitation worker. is he really the garbage collector at romney's la jolla mansion. also a member of as me the american federation of county and state employees. wevehement opponents of mitt romney's candidacy. they represent all the municipal workers. the people whose pensions are bankrupting cities and have been, you know, in the crosshairs of mitt romney and the republicans for this entire electi
praised romney's performance after its missteps in recent weeks. brooks writing this. romney finally emerged from the fog and at long last began the process of offering a more authentic version of himself. noonan wrote this, america got its first sustained look at the good and competent mr. romney. how much do you think does the public support of leading conservaves like the two of them help romney, not just with republicans but with undecided voters? >> i think it helped some, but the person who helped governor romney most was governor romney. on wednesday night, he was before almost 70 million people, a lot of them undecided voters trying to make up their mind. he made a very clear case that, you know, he is someone who can connect. i thought the thing that was most shocking to me was the fact that the governor -- you know, the president has said to be better liked, more likable, better able to connect with voters, and it seemed to me as though the governor did a better job at doing those thingsn wednesday night than the president. so i think he helped himself tremendously. >> i wa
have to think that the early voting going on then is tremendously to governor romney's benefit. you are right. but it -- we will find out on tuesday or something like that and next week. but this suggests one thing governor rom romney has to do, they have to keep their foot on the accelerator. he had a terrific victory. but i wouldn't rest at all. looking forward to this thing, next week, next thursday night. that's going to be important. the second debate will be important. i heard someone say, governor romney, really, obama should be favored. he's good at that format, moving around. but how does he attack romney? they will tell him to do it. they are talking about bain capital, that reduce it's. >> greta: i thought he was smart not to do that -- he wants to look presidential. he doesn't want his fingerprints on petty and going after someone. i think it is same is true of governor romney, vis-a-vis president obama. they can flood the market with the super pacs. >> exactly, exactly. if the president goes at the 47% and bain capital and the tax returns, it diminishes the president an
this week's debate in "new york" magazine. quote, tonight's debate saw the return of mitt romney who ran for office in massachusetts in 1994 in 2002. he was obsessive about portraying himself as a moderate, using every possible opening or ambiguity, and when necessary, making them up to shove his way to the center. did this mitt romney look familiar to you? is this the return of the so-called massachusetts mitt romney? >> absolutely. i mean, this is the etch a sketch moment. mitt romney ran as a pro-choice, antitax. he was going to be a bipartisan governor. and the fact is he was opposed to women's reproductive rights. he raised fees by nearly a billion dollars. so it's say anything to get elected. but also pretend that you're a moderate. he actually took great pleasure in telling people when he had run for office before, he did not support ronald reagan. but the moment he got into office, he really began switching very quickly to the right. and now you have -- i don't know what you have today, because now it seems like he is coming back to the center. >> i want to play a romney ad that
at the romney campaign with a serious sense of deja vu as the boston globe wrote this week, about six weeks before a crucial election. and shortly after he had secured the republican nomination, mitt romney was trailing badly. voters had unfavorable views of him. they didn't think he cared for people like them. women overwhelmingly favored his opponent. the year was 2002. of course, romney came back to win that election, defeating the democratic nominee for governor, shannon o'brien by five points. i am joined now by shannon o'brien, a former massachusetts state senator and former treasurer, rather, and former state senator. and thank you very much for coming on the show with us. >> thank you, milissa. >> let me start by reading you an analysis from right after this week's debate in "new york" magazine. quote, tonight's debate saw the return of mitt romney who ran for office in massachusetts in 1994 in 2002. he was obsessive about portraying himself as a moderate, using every possible opening or ambiguity, and when necessary, making them up to shove his way to the center. did this mitt romn
's supporters, very disappointed in his performance. mitt romney has a couple of events down in florida this weekend. but we understand he's also going to be practicing for that next debate in two weeks. rob portman, the republican senator from ohio, who has portrayed president obama in some of these rehearsals is down in florida with him. mitt romney, obviously, trying to keep that momentum going. >> what are you hearing within the white house about the spin on those -- on the 7.8% report that came out yesterday? and all these conspiracy theories that are surrounding it? >> reporter: the white house calls it utter nonsense, as do most people on both sides of the aisle. jack welch is almost famous or infamous by now. jack welch, the former ceo of general electric, tweeting out that, you know, the innuendo that the bureau of labor statistics had cooked the books. that was called utter nonsense by the deputy white house spokesman. others, including jared bernstein, who is an economist here until recently in the white house, said that welch should be ashamed of himself. you know, he's sort
gets worse for drivers in california. >>> but first, after mitt romney's attack on big bird this week, the mega-sized muppet has been popping up in some surprising places this weekend. we'll show you, next. you're watching msnbc. with the spark cash card from capital one, sven's home security gets the most rewards of any small business credit card! how does this thing work? oh, i like it! [ garth ] sven's small business earns 2% cash back on every purchase, every day! woo-hoo!!! so that's ten security gators, right? put them on my spark card! why settle for less? testing hot tar... great businesses deserve the most rewards!

deal this week in the first presidential debate when governor romney said this -- >> what would i cut from spending? obamacare is on the list. i use that term with all respect. i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs and other things. i love pbs and big bird, and i actually like you, too. lou: president obama not able to resist since then referring to big bird yesterday and today, and here's what he said. >> for all of you moms and kids out there, don't worry, somebody's finally getting tough on big bird. [cheers and applause] rounding him up. elmo's got to watch out too. governor romney plans to let wall street run wild, but he's bringing the hammer down on "sesame street," it makes sense. lou: the president was trying to make a joke, but, mr. president, wait a minute. turns out big bird is deserving of considerable public attention. upon further investigation, it appears the last thing the president should be doing is to minimize what's happening to the taxpayer money because of big bird, all his friends like elmo and jim lehrer. the president should be paying attention to the count to
all the problems romney has had for the last few weeks? >> i think part of obama's problem was his coaching and i also think he was leaning too much on his income ben sea instead of getting out there assuming he was on the same level as romney. >> just an advisory board, yes. >> what i support is no change for current retirees and near retirees to medicare, and the president supports taking $716 billion out of that program. i want to take that $716 billion you have cut and put it back into medicare. by the way, we can include a prescription program if we need to improve it but the idea of cutting $716 billion from medicare to be able to balance the additional cost of obamacare is, in my opinion, a mistake. >> if you repeal obamacare, and i have become fond of this term, obamacare, if you repeal it, what happens is, those seniors right away are going to be paying $600 more in prescription care, and the primary beneficiary of that repeal are insurance companies that are estimated to gain billions of dollars back when they aren't maaren't making sen healthier, and i don't think that's
